Barnie’s Coffee & Tea Company has announced the addition of a second coffee roasting production shift at its 12,000-square-foot plant in Orlando, Florida. Barnie’s Coffee added the second shift to generate approximately 2,200 bags per day, which doubles the roasted coffee output needed to meet the demand for its coffees.

“Even in an extremely competitive marketplace, demand for our coffee and tea products, especially our nationally famous Santa’s White Christmas coffee, is strongly combined with the ability to maximise and internalise usage of our high-capacity Dietrich roasting equipment,” stated CEO of Barnie’s Coffee, Ron Pecora.

In 2023 alone, more than 10 million cups of Santa’s White Christmas Coffee were consumed year-round. The total roasted coffee production in 2024 is projected to be more than 500,000 pounds.

Barnie’s Coffee & Tea Company, founded in 1980, offers whole bean and ground coffee, plus flavoured single serve cups. Next year, six new Limited Time Only flavours will be created and available to sip. Barnie’s Coffee plans to bring customer favorites back from the Barnie’s vault, too.

In addition to their online store, the 43-year-old company offers products on other online platforms such as Amazon and in select grocery stores like Publix and Winn Dixie throughout the Southeast. Barnie’s Coffee & Tea Company has a flagship café located in Winter Park, but also operates in collaboration with partnered cafés in the Orlando International Airport Terminal C, the Hitt Library at the University of Central Florida, Stetson University, Rollins College, Seminole County Schools, and the Orlando Science Center.
